"I have felt that way. Yes there has always been a strong encouragement for "One night a week with the missionaries. This can be delegated throughout the HP group leadership or the quorum both HP and Elders. Monthly PPIs have been in the books…"

G. Douglas replied to Brett McKay's discussion Your Favorite Manly Hyms in the group LDS Men

G. Douglas replied to Tanner's discussion Can We Handle it Anymore? in the group LDS Men
"There has certainly been a push for a while now for members to focus more on the basics of the gospel than on various opinions, speculations etc. At the end of the day, understanding topics such as those listed above may be interesting, but…"
